This B list actress with A++ list name recognition who has not had a hit in a decade and even that was something in which she was along for the ride, is definitely world famous. The thing is she is really trying to shake up her image. A lot. You would never expect it from her because she seems so buttoned down and uptight and she knows it and blames it on her most recent disastrous relationship. So, she has been in talks to be in Playboy. Not naked, but she wants to be on the cover and inside wants to be wearing very little. She thinks it will make people remember why they fell in love with her in the first place.
Maybe Miss American Beauty as she hasn't had a movie in a good few years? I can imagine a rose petal scene in Playboy.
Along for the ride could be a clue
